Domaine Guy & Yvan Dufouleur Fixin 1er Cru Clos du Chapitre 

The Dufouleur family have been merchants since 1610, but it was very recently that the new generation represented by Yvan and Yann decided this year to start distributing the family estate wines. Yann sorts out the export markets; Yvan does the winemaking. The vineyards extend from Fixin to Santenay and include exclusive ownership of Fixin's Clos du Chapitre Premier Cru.

Vinification
Selective picking in the vineyard. Cool maceration for one week and fermentation for 2 weeks. Ageing in oak barrel ageing (1/3 new oak) for 13 months including malo lactic fermentation, and 2 months vat resting before bottling.

Viticulture

Tasting Note
Lovely aromas of raspberries showing spice and fresh red fruits through to a firm finish.
